Officials with the Calhoun County Road Department are warning that they expect potholes will be worse than usual this spring.

According to the Road Department, the unusually deep frost this winter will probably make for a greater number of big potholes because rain and snowmelt can’t be absorbed into the ground as easily.

Managing Director Christopher Bolt says the Road Department has crews working overtime to fix potholes but that major repairs will have to wait until the frost has diminished.
